Speaker: Simon Gillings
Reporter: Sue Gale
On 17th September our Chair, Keith Walker, welcomed Simon Gillings of the BTO to Zoom. Our second Zoom talk delivered by a guest speaker was every bit as successful as the first. Simon has been with the BTO since the mid-1990’s and before that did his first degree and PhD at UEA so he is a real local. He talked to us about the study of birds flying by night using recordings of their vocalisations, known as ‘nocmig’. This technique requires only a small expense and enables birders to experience night-time migration from their own homes or gardens.
